Please provide the ability for the code editor to pop out into a SEPARATE, moveable and resizeable window.
Agreed. Low code/no code is great and all until you have to do some real work.
We are doing some work to improve the inline formula editing experience now, flagging @LanceDelano who is looking at this area
Would love to see pop out windows for powerapps. I would like to be able to move my "screens" and "Screen Properties" onto another computer screen. loving PowerApps so far keep it up.
- many thanks
FYI - I'd also like to add the following if possible (would be happen to open a new "idea" on these if that is a better way):
How about adding a mini Monaco editor, too much?
This is incredibly important. Between VS Code compatibility and the ability to pop out the window, this would speed the development process up for real life use cases.
To be clear, the biggest issues I've seen are:
This is critically important, please allow the code window to float out in its own window.
Most of us have more than one monitor (I use three) and this would be an unbelievable improvement over the current resizing of a window that covers our work over and over and over again. Also, the ability to search and find/replace in the editor is also something that is expected and required to ensure accuracy when analysing and updating complex code.
I hope this is isn't one of those things that won't be considered because someone thinks it goes against the "low code" idea.
Amen on this! I also keenly like the ideas of @BrianR for having multiple external formula windows...at least two. Having that would GREATLY improve my efficiency and minimize bugs I introduce due to the code-viewing/comparing options.
After you've worked with VS Code, Power Apps Studio feels like being tortured. Even a "Mini" Monaco editor like @dsghi recommended would help A LOT.
If I had a dollar for every time the expanded formula bar had to be closed just to see the right most part of the items in the Tree View, I'd be off to the local brew pub with a truck and a mean thirst. WHO did the layout and aligned the left of the formula textbox/pane overlapping the Tree View/Explorer pane by a centimeter!?!?!? I've tried hacking the CSS to no avail just to get the formula bar to left align with the design canvas. Anybody CSS/DOM tweakers had more luck?
